This is the cheerleader Paul Ryan dated at college who helped forge his uncompromising opposition to racism.
The relationship and the backlash he suffered from his so-called friends were a formative experience in the political evolution of the Republican vice-presidential pick who described himself as a 'big, big fan' of Martin Luther King and is a staunch advocate of civil rights.
Today Mail Online reveals the woman whose romantic attachment led Ryan, who electrified the Republican convention in Tampa with his speech on Wednesday night, to experience racism first hand.
The Republican vice-presidential candidate dated Deneeta Pope, now 40 and a realtor living in Chicago, after they met at Miami University, Ohio in the early 1990s. Michael Steel, campaign spokesman for Ryan, today told MailOnline: 'Mr Ryan dated Ms Pope in college.'

Not guilty! Ryan had a good eye :)
Nothing about the economy, Afghanistan, taxes, or unemployment, just RACE, RACE and more RACE! The media’s sole focus is alluding to race on EVERYTHING to deflect us from the horrific 0bama record..
She’s hot. I saw a pic of her earlier..
If this is true, it's more in less than 12 hours on Ryan than over 6 years of zero.
Amazing. Paul Ryan has been in the national spotlight for just a few weeks and already a News outlet has located an old college girlfriend, with pictures.
Meanwhile Obama’s college girfriend is a ‘composite’, if she ever existed at all.
No need to ask; just wanted you to enjoy!
Well, he has dated REAL beauties.
Note that to get this story, you have to go to the British Press.
To a lot of people, it’s just fine for a white gal to date/marry a black guy. The reverse is frowned upon as a number of black guys feel the white guy has a slave, vs a trophy wife.
Who cares if he dated a black woman??
I went out with a black woman at uni several times -she was my lab partner...and we developed a friendship...no difference with her than other woman I dated.
“A recent NBC News/Wall Street journal poll found that Romney had zero per cent support among black voters, though the poll had a margin of error of three per cent.”
Maybe with the older generation..See my post above...most people in my age group today don't care. I knew plenty of guys in HS/college who dated black women and this was never brought up or thought of.
And the number of white guys dating/marrying black women is growing...getting fairly common.
Blacks "date" the best-looking (usually blonde) female they can B.S., and it's "diversity" and "inclusion".
“Romney has spoken proudly of the support his father George, who was governor of Michigan, gave to the civil rights campaign at a time when relatively few Republican politicians did so.”
Romney needs a history lesson.
